Sue began her producing career at Tiger Aspect in 1991 with 'Mr. Bean'. She went on to produce Emmy Award winner 'The Vicar of Dibley', 'Hospital' (which was the opening night comedy for Channel 5 and a winner at Banff), and 'The Last Englishman' which was a Bafta nominated single drama starring Jim Broadbent.
She then had an idea for a flat share between a gay man and a straight girl, got Jonathan Harvey on board and they created 'Gimme, Gimme, Gimme' which was frequently top of the BBC2 ratings and subsequently moved to BBC1.
In 1998 Sue left Tiger Aspect to produce Comic Relief before joining Hartswood Films. She continued to executive produce Gimme with Tiger and for Hartswood also produced four series of 'Coupling' which was created and written by Steven Moffat, her husband.
Sue has produced several more comedies: 'Fear Stress and Anger', 'Carrie and Barrie', 'The Savages', 'Supernova' and 'The Cup', and has recently helmed all four series of the multi award-winning drama 'Sherlock' starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman for BBC1.
